Two things finally resolved today - the playroom is finished (well, except for the cabinet doors that the contractor apparently forgot to order, and the repair of the hallway light and broken screen door). But it is a useable room, just in time for my sister's visit tomorrow.
I took B in to remove the stitch and also talk about options for removal of the mole entirely; thank goodness they offered to do a basic removal today with just a little shot of numbing medicine; they scooped the thing out and now he has a little depression there. They say it will scar but anything is better than an eruptive mole!!! If it returns we'll have to do real plastic surgery with anesthesia which freaks me out a bit so let's hope that doesn't happen, ever. Here are some pics of the new room and a little before and after as a reminder of what it used to look like. B was positively thrilled to be able to crawl and play freely.
